I'm going to spend about 45 seconds responding to Woz's post below.
In brief, I don't know what's wrong with Favre admitting he wanted to "stick it to Ted".
Wow, after Favre wanted to come back to Green Bay but Ted didn't want him back, he wanted to go out and prove Ted wrong? No way! That's so weird! That's such a human response to the situation!
Somebody please explain to me why this is a big deal.
(By the way, I think spite is one of my favorite motivators. It's outstanding, in my opinion.)
If you want to see how a classy organization handles things like this, check out how Jacksonville treated Fred Taylor. Before free agency started, they told Taylor, their all-time leading everything running back, that they didn't want him any more. They had a younger, cheaper player to play RB. They said Fred, you can retire as a Jaguar, or if you want to keep playing we will release you and you can get a jump-start on the free agent period and go find yourself a job.
Mortified of Brett Favre coming back to bite him in the ass in Minnesota, Chicago or somewhere else, Ted took a different route.
